maybe I misunderstood the post before that read in part,

" if it werent for gate crashers there prolly would still be a quality, not so expensive, woodstock every year. when you cant break even cuz so called happy kind ppl steal from you..."

There were gate crashers at the 1st Woodstock, and it took years for some of the backers to recoup their investments; no matter how free and beautiful a festival is, someone had to sweat and sacrifice more than they planned to.

And no matter how maligned a festival was, some people had a good time...
such as at Altamont, I've read positive reviews by peeps who weren't near the stage.

By the big screen, I meant the concert screen so people in the back can see what's going on.

At one 1970 Grateful Dead show I saw, some people were saying, "Sit down!"
"We can't see!""
other people were saying "Stand up!"

This went on for a while, until eventually Bob Weir said, "Stand on your heads!"
and someone else in the band said, "there's nothin' to see!"
